Lotus Notes is the official e-mail system used by all Fort Hays State University employees. To obtain an account, the department chair or administrative assistant must submit a CTC Request for Services to request initial computing accounts for the new employee (see Information for New Faculty and Staff for details).
The Registrar's Office sends messages to faculty e-mail addresses regarding important dates, enrollment, grades, and other information. You may access Lotus Notes with an Internet browser (using iNotes) to receive e-mail and use your calendar. After your account is created, you can access iNotes, as follows:
Change your password as soon as possible after receiving access to your account. We recommend using a minimum of seven characters, with at least one letter and one number. To change your password, click on Preferences (at the top of the window), then Security (on the left), and then Change… Follow all prompts.
Delete all messages you don't need so as not to exhaust your allotted server space. Click Delete to remove selected notes from your Inbox. Then click on the Trash Can icon and select Empty Trash.
Because FHSU is unable to provide support for other e-mail systems, we cannot assist with problems encountered while using other e-mail providers. Also, please note that some Lotus Notes applications (Workflow, etc.) require use of the Lotus Notes account. However, if you would like to request forwarding of your Lotus Notes messages to an alternate primary e-mail address, contact the CTC HelpDesk and provide the e-mail address.
If you need assistance using iNotes, an on-line Help application (next to the Logout button) gives detailed instructions for most tasks. Answers to Lotus Notes Frequently Asked Questions are available in the E-Mail section of the CTC HelpDesk Web site. If you still need additional assistance using iNotes, contact the CTC HelpDesk.
